Greetings,

Does anyone make a reduced pressure mag release spring? It takes nine pounds of pressure to release the magazine in my stainless target model. This isn't so bad when using your right thumb, but as a lefty, it's hard to push with my left index fingertip. I've seen larger and longer mag release buttons, but I don't think those would really solve the problem, and they would create another one because they could interfere with my trigger finger. Aside from finger exercises, any suggestions?

Thanks,
Rusty

Thanks for all the suggestions.

I just ordered a mag catch spring pak from Wolff, that includes 5 springs. One is a standard replacement, and the other 4 are reduced pressure by different amounts. The kit was $9.00, and will let me choose the pressure I like. What a perfect solution to my problem!

As for the lefty release, it's tempting, but I'm afraid it would just confuse me when having to switch between guns that had it and guns that didn't. Since I'm used to having the release on the left, I'm probably better off keeping it there. Still very tempting though.

Thanks again,
Rusty
